Allardyce for Black Cats

Sunderland have confirmed the appointment of Sam Allardyce as manager on a two-year contract.

The 60-year-old will take over at the Stadium of Light with immediate effect and becomes the first man to manage both Sunderland and Newcastle.

Allardyce left West Ham in the summer after three years at Upton Park, which saw him guide the club back to the Premier League.
